U.S. 'Occupy' Activists Hold May Day Demos

In New York City's Bryant Park, Occupy Wall Street (OWS) activists held what they called "creative disruptions against corporations” to celebrate the workers' rights movement and protest rising economic inequality as part of May Day festivities. May 1 -- also known as International Worker’s Day -- is a holiday in 80 countries but not in the United States. Members of the OWS movement held numerous demonstrations across the country.
